This bug was fixed in the package debian-installer - 20101020ubuntu451.6

debian-installer (20101020ubuntu451.6) xenial; urgency=medium

  * Use full version as BUILD_DATE string in the build process, such that
    mini.iso mini-info & d-i fake status file correctly declare full
    buildstamp. Currently it's impossible to tell apart SRU builds from
    each and from the GA build. LP: #1628149.

  .disk/mini-info is the same for GA and SRU d-i builds

Status in debian-installer package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in debian-installer source package in Xenial:
  Fix Released

Bug description:


   * d-i build does not contain a full version number, thus impossible
  to identify which build a mini.ios, pxeboot, netboot builds belong to
  prior or after the install.

   * this makes it impossible to tell apart SRU builds of d-i

   * The fix is to include a full version string, instead of stripped
  one, during build

  [Test Case]

   * Unpack mini-iso, verify that .disk/mini-info has a full version
  string including training .N number.

   * Install system and check that debian-installer package in
  /var/log/installer/status has full version number including training
  .N number

  [Regression Potential]

   * minimal, the version/buildstamp used is an arbitrary string, sans
  trailing .N number.
